for building. rosemary of course will speak for housing inspection services. what building did is we tripled the amount of director's hearings going forward. we put additional staff into code enforcement to go after the first and second notices of violation that seemed to be languishing and push them forward. on that note, one of the inspectors we put there, he is out ill due to a knee replacement. we expect him back probably in november, december, january. we do have one extra person up there working and as the amount of inspections decrease we can put probably more inspection staff assigned to it. we are also waiting for civil service exam which we figure will occur sometime in late november for the 6331 position, which is building inspector. that process should probably take 2, 2 1/2 months. we're expecting by january-february to hire more building inspectors, one of whom we will assign to code enforcement and again that person's primary responsibility will be to push these first and second notice of violations forward and capture more directors hearings, more orders of abatement. othe

about the way things are going. >> yeah, i think -- commissioners, any comment there? rosemary, i think one of the, i mean obviously we have a long road here to go, but i think this kind of might have addressed to bill as well. i think you've been doing a pretty good job. with these settlements there's an idea we have to spend a lot of money, a lot of cases to get these. i'm finding out these good settlements obviously that the dollar amounts used to get there is not that bad, actually, from the city -- i keep asking that question and i keep getting the right answers back. i wonder if it's something we need to promote more within the department that we good after these cases and if they are the right one, the ones that we definitely need to go after, we don't have to spend a lot of money to get a good settlement. >> that's exactly right, commissioner, and i will tell you, without disclosing anything from closed door settlements, the commissioners are asking all the right questions. that's a good mechanism for staff and the commission and the executive management of the department to
of it for the tenants. >> rosemary, i have a question for you, too, actually. >> i don't believe when the commission asked mr. karnilowicz if the rooms, the guest rooms that have bathrooms are occupied by residential or tourist residents, whether that was answered. and if they're tourists, if they're shorter term, some of those rooms may become available. or are they residential? because even though a building may have residential and tourist rooms and be used primarily for residential, the fact of the matter is that what most of the operators do are they realize that they can have shorter -- may be used for residential use, but it can be shorter than a 7-day pier yd. i -- period. i think it would be transient. the hotel ordinance won't necessarily tell us, but we do have a list of what those rooms are. and it may be that some of those rooms may come up with -- earlier than 3 to six months to be able to do that * . or that's just a possible alternative. the property owner may have a vacant room that maybe a tourist room right now that they can use a portion of that to do a conversion with a buildin

. the reference that the chief housing inspector, rosemary, made a little bit ago about david chiu's legislation on amending chapter 41 a for the apartment conversion ordinance, this has to do with going after especially commercial entities that may be with master leases subleasing to tourists operations that supervisor chiu is particularly anxious to stop. that legislation passed its second reading yesterday. as expected, the mayor will sign it before the end of this week, so that will actually take legal effect sometime about the time of thanksgiving. and as the chief housing inspector indicated internally she is taking the lead on preparing the various steps the department will have to take to help enforce the provisions that are in those amendments. the only other one i wanted to address is what jane said about opening the door on commercial building, we have had mis take a look at our list of vacant buildings which right now is just a little over 500 buildings. it looks like we have 46 on that list that would fall into this commercial category. so it's obviously a much smaller number and

to say to rosemary thank you so much for your responsiveness and for your hard work. i think it's much appreciated by us. thank you. >> i wanted to thank you guys as well. one request i think that we had last year was if we could get some kind of stats on the regular violators. the nov's sometimes seem to bunch up with just a few property owners or a couple of folks so if we could kind of get those kind of stats and maybe we can encourage staff to focus on the main violators, that would be helpful. >> i can definitely put something together for you. as the litigation subcommittee, they are seeing those property owners, they are referred to the city attorney when it's appropriate. >> commissioner. >> thank you for doing all this. i feel that it's very important that the department respond quickly to these nov's and do them in a timely manner because if we don't respond to them and the recipients of the nov's can think we're being lazy, relaxed, they will forget us or whatever, we don't want that to happen. if that's the case there might be repeat offenses and problems, more probl
is trying to get those going and rosemary has done yeoman's job on that. >> with regard to the holding, so i know for example dpw were going through hiring. is this across all departments or just dbi on hold? >> it's across all departments. what happens is that, for instance, in this case it's a management decision, like a very kind of the lowest level management assistant, the second lowest. and so we had a job description, we provided that to dhr, they looked to see whether the individual, you know, met that job description. they looked at what, whether there were open requisitions in other departments. so they may have vacancies and not put recs out. so they would not necessarily be captured as being a possibility, but it's throughout the city. all these things, especially the clerks, they are placing people throughout the city. >> like 1406, it's -- my first reaction when you said the redevelopment agency, i wouldn't have thought there would be many 1406 type people in that list, if any. >> we are not allowed to see that. all i know is that the edict went out -- i'm sorry, the dire
